Looking south from the fire escape of Fleetway House in 1969. Immediately below right are the tracks down into Snow Hill tunnel and the widened Lines at Farringdon. Holborn Viaduct signal box is on a gantry above the lines. The north ends of Holborn Viaduct's platforms are seen on the right. In the middle distance is the disused platform of Ludgate Hill station with the walls that once supported the trainshed. The wall on the west side was lowered when the station was rebuilt. In the distance to the west of the formation part of the roof of the Blackfriars station trainshed can be seen.
